Toucans - Year 6 2022 - 2023

Miss Cowie

Welcome to Toucans' class and our class page.  

I hope you have all had a restful half term break and that the children are ready for their final few weeks at primary school.  It's always a time of excitment and anticipation (with a sprinkling of nerves), but we have lots of wonderful plans for them to look forward to - visiting teachers from Weaverham High School to teach us DT and PE, The Wizard of Oz, transition visits to high schools, a leavers service to plan and prepare and hopefully lots of good weather so that we can enjoy some sports outdoors.

Here is a brief overview of the areas of learning that we will be focusing on this half term.  Some of the areas continue from last term as we complete areas that our SATs preparation and tests prevented us from looking at in depth.

Curriculum Learning Summer Term 2

Please ensure that your child brings in the correct P.E. kit and trainers every Monday morning and that it stays in school for the week. I would still advise that children bring  a zip-up hoodie or jumper along with their usual PE kit for chillier days. Please make sure that your child has the correct school P.E. kit and that it is labelled clearly, so lost items can be returned to their rightful owner. Please also provide a water bottle and sunscreen (to be applied by themselves) for your child every day.  

Please can I also remind you that 'field shoes' continue to be necessary this term.  After a shower, our field will remain wet for a time, so a change of shoe for playing out on the field will still be necessary. 

Toucans will continue to be taught by Mrs Austin on a Friday morning. 

Homework for the next few weeks will be project based.  As always I will message parents each Friday so that you are clear on what the expectations are for that week.  Please support your child with completing this as regular homework both supports the children's learning and prepares them for what is to come at high school. 

Please remember that daily reading continues to be essential for all children and in Upper KS2 and we advise that you read for 15-20 minutes per day with your child, no matter their proficiency level. Whilst listening to your child, try to ask them questions about events that have happened so far, characters thoughts and motives and to make accurate predictions and inferences based on the text as well as the meanings of words within it

Should you have any further queries, please feel free to contact me using the email address below.
